The Fitton coat of arms on the N front was carved in 1570, in the time of Sir Edward Fitton, the elder.

Inherited 1643 by the Fitton descendant Charles Gerard, 1st Earl of Macclesfield.
Though he fought a legal battle with his Fitton cousins for its ownership until 1662.

It is now called "Gawsworth Old Hall" to distinguish it from Gawsworth New Hall (begun in 1707) to the N of it.
